Unbeknownst to my readers, I've known how to make planets in Paint Shop Pro from photos for awhile now... It took some time for it to occur to me to apply the Curly Q effect to one tho- This was today's result.
Here is the color n texture changed version, with a rotating mirror applied.
I rotated it 180 degrees before making the circle out of it.
I've never seen this effect appear so warped-round due to the colors before. When I say I write Sci-Fi n invent whole new worlds to describe, I'm not kidding- these give my imagination quite a boost... The possibilities are endless. Then again, maybe it could be a new bowling ball design...
In reality, it is a pic of the short pier taken from the main pier at the village harbor during a less colorful sunset on my last Day Off. The windchill must've been -20F, so I hid behind the leeward side of Harbor-Master shack to bear the chill for a few minutes. The water was pretty choppy around the planks.
It formed a pretty wavy planet too!
